News sources in Erie say a Gannon University student has been charged after allegedly taking off his clothes in the school library and fighting with police.

The reports say 25 year-old Christopher Hower was charged Sunday, and was lodged in the Erie County Jail.

Police say Hower twice stripped off his clothes in front of faculty members and other Gannon students.  He is also alleged to have threatened to kill an Erie City Police officer, and of putting a campus policeman into a “headlock.”

The police response came shortly before 2:30 PM Sunday afternoon.  Reports did not list a hometown for Hower.
